CollectionFielden Manuscripts
Collection DescriptionOlga Fielden was a student at Queen’s University Belfast. She moved to London for a period after her graduation but returned to Northern Ireland where she wrote plays for, and performed with, the amateur dramatics society, the Northern Drama League. Olga published 2 novels based on life in Ulster, Island Story (1933) and Stress (1936); a third novel, Liam Donn, remained unpublished ‘due to war’. Fielden’s play Three to Go (1950) enjoyed a successful run at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin; she also wrote several one-act plays for radio which were aired on BBC Northern Ireland during the 1950s.
